  1. Especially on a smoker where the item is probably much closer to the element. We had to adjust the element output (on an industrial powder coat oven) so that it wasn't overheating; I think it ended up at like 25% of total output so they're running almost constantly, but not cycling up so hot and causing temp inconsistencies. Didn't think of that, but I bet it's causing surface temps to be too high
  2. Have you checked your oven temp? Hardener ratio correct? Hardener is still good? I've only ever seen flaking like that if the base was cured too long; is the rest of the later adhered well, or can you pick it off?
  3. Define "hit or miss", please. What's occurring? Are you getting peeling off of the base surface, or lifting the newly applied color when removing stencils?
  4. It's legal in ESP, just not SSP. I use it on my production X5 and shoot ESP with it in IDPA.
  5. Playing with an A01 and Accu2 side by side, the trigger felt more smooth on the A01 and the balance was different. My large hands preferred the Shadow, but the 01 was almost as comfortable. Obviously the bull barrel and extra weight can go either way, depending on your preference
  6. That sounds like a good start. Do you have a measurable difference in mag body width after the squish?

    320 X5 Questions

    For grip treatment I could see problems getting any real weight, sure. I'd be curious about using in conjunction with a thin adhesive to make a replacement grip weight; sort of like a cold cast statue.

    320 X5 Questions

    Dan, what about using tungsten powder used f for weighting golf club handles? Not sure what availability is like in Australia, but it's pretty prevalent in the states. There's a standard weight, which is about like lead powder, and the more dense variety.
  9. With the slide off, can you duplicate the problem? Are you sure the gun is reassembled correctly? I'm not trying to be critical, but if something is not back together correctly, or say something is sticking out where it shouldn't be, that will cause issues.
  10. It's entirely possible that your new hook height is causing the sear to hit the safety/half cock notch on the hammer. Similar to having an overtravel screw adjusted incorrectly. If you pull the trigger until the hammer just releases, and then manually lower the hammer, do you feel it catching a little on the stroke?
  11. One of the benefits of the P10F, if you want to think of it this way, is that a backup or replacement firearm isn't nearly the investment another SP01 or Shadow would be. If you're going to switch, makes sense to do it before Area 4 if you have the time to acclimate to the striker from DA/SA
  12. I would assume the tube clamp socket would be the Nordic one designed for the clamp, but I could be wrong. TTI and GG&G both make stock plates with a QD socket.
  13. For multiple holsters on my Open/3 Gun ELS belt, I use the Safariland QLS brackets and forks. Like the ELS, but sized larger for holster mounting
  14. You might be able to make weight and shoot in ESP with some creative internal modification/weight removal, but it's probably in the extreme end of the cost/benefit scale. It's been done with a Dan Wesson PM-C for CCP, but that was only about 1.5oz. over with a mag.
  15. That's terrible. Unless the gunsmith has an epiphany and realizes that "creepy" and "crisp" are not synonymous, I would push for a refund.
